The Art of Beaded Edging

Beaded Edging

Beaded Edging

When I posted pictures of the scissor fob I made for the Tiny Treasures Exchange (not the one shown here),  Gaynor asked me how to finish a piece with beaded edging. I tried to explain (in words) but it’s really hard to do it without images. 

Well, I was surfing and guess what I found? Alexandrina at Matrioshka Biscornu has  large clear photos showing exactly what to do. The text is not in English, but not to panic – no need for a crash course in Russian. The pictures really do all the talking. Alexandrina also has some great freebie designs on her blog, so if you haven’t  already been, this is a good time to get acquainted.

Happy Stitching 😉


Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
